    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. Set Up File Sharing on a Windows 10 PC

    Hi Brink great tutorial as usual.

    I could not help but notice in step 1 you say to enable " Function Discovery Resource Publication "

    In most of the posts I have read on Ten Forums they also suggest to enable " Function Discovery Provider Host "

    Are you suggesting that Function Discovery Provider Host is not necessary.
